I'd like to introduce you to my friend Amelia. Amelia is my beautifully constructed romper made from 100% linen fibers. Her and I have only been friends for a few short months but we've already shared some unforgettable moments together.
I always say it's the memories that make the outfit special. Being a fashion enthusiast (and someone with an abnormally specific long-term memory), I tend to associate certain occasions with what I was wearing that day. I love going through my closet, looking at a piece of clothing, and reminiscing on a happy time with it. This romper is particularly special because I wore it during my sister's bachelorette weekend in Sint Maarten! We stayed on the Dutch side but ventured to the French side one night to dine at a restaraunt called Le Tastevin. Truly the best meal I've eaten and the service was also top notch.
I was lucky enough to visit before Hurricane Irma brought immense devastation to the island . My heart is broken knowing the kindhearted locals are suffering and that many of the beautiful places I visited have been destroyed. I hope that all my readers will take a moment to donate to Global Giving Hurricane Irma Relief Fund . Even if you've already made a donation, every little bit helps.
